Is it possible to install PyQGIS in virtual environment? I want to use rendering capabilities in my own application which runs using virtualenv.

PyQGIS doesn't seem to be available via pip. Would it be acceptable if PyQGIS was installed globally and you had access to it within your Python virtual environment? That's pretty easy to do. – Arthur Feb 20 '14 at 14:33
